  • Water
  • Medium saucepan
  • Soy wax
  • Candle making pitcher (or 4-cup measuring glass)
  • Thermometer
  • Essential oils for fragrance
  • Small glass jars (I used the small wide mouth Mason jars)
  • Chopsticks or wooden skewers

Container tips:

  • Check the dollar store for glass containers that are inexpensive, and made specifically for burning candles.
  • Save your tea tins!
  • Once you’ve used the contents of small aluminium cans (such as tomato paste tins), peel off the label, wash, and you have cute little silver candle tins.
  • Check your local thrift shops often for old ceramic bowls, pitchers, sugar bowls, tins, metal drinking cups, small canisters…so many possibilities.

Wick tips:

  • Keep them trimmed!
  • The thicker the wick, the wider the container can be. Any votive will work with any wick size, but once you’ve used something wide, like a china cup, for example, your wick needs to be thicker to melt the wax all the way to the sides. So check your sizes when you go wick shopping!
